It was definitely worth sticking with the scotch. The Glenmorangie has become addictive and the Macallan 12 Year may be my favorite so far. I am also enjoying two Islays - Laphroaig and Ardbeg. This is turning into an expensive habit!

Default scotch and bourbon recommendations

I just joined this forum and I'm a scotch/bourbon drinker. Would recommend the following for a new scotch drinker:

Aberlour A'Bunadh -- sherry finish, cask strength -- one that I always come back to and one that has always received a very positive reaction from scotch drinking friends

Bruchhlaidich Islay Barley -- a new bottling that is not peated and has a very interesting peppery middle taste. Very mild. Another Bruchhlaidich that may be of interest is the new Organic bottling

I prefer wheated bourbons and particularly like the Weller bourbons. One in particular -- the Centennial W.L.Weller -- has a "berry-like" taste to it -- I think this is a 13 yr old. If you can find a William Larue Weller bottling (typically bottled at 120+ proof) I'd get it -- it's a bit strong but wonderfully sweet (once you get past the burn).

Buffalo Trace is a very good and fairly complex inexpensive everyday bourbon.

Hope this helps -- let us know what you think of the suggestions given to you
